The cupcakes were a BIG hit. and the acorns. Both of which I had to crochet more of both days and Saturday night so as not to sell out. But consensus was that this year was a low turnout and sales were down for everyone. At least I had some time to write out my Christmas list at last.
Best of all: I got four of the hardest people on my list some marvelous handmade local Christmas gifts.
Before I say anymore, the answer is yes, I spent all the money I made. almost. What little I had left was lent to my pregnant sister-in-law for a too-beautiful-to-pass-up baby sweater.
So now all the rush and stress of preparing is over and done with and it's back to life as usual. kind of. Daddy is a way better housekeeper than me, but there are still some things that have been ignored for awhile that are demanding attention now. like lots of laundry. And that disaster area that I've been working in. There's a good half ton of scraps to sort through.
But first I have a big swap to finish up to be sent...tomorrow. eek. But I'm thinking there's a little giveaway to go with that. it's the giving season, right? So check back tomorrow for that.
And I have some bartering to try, some photos to take so I can finally set up the etsy shop, and then all the sewing I have to start for gifts! Aah! Maybe the stress isn't done yet? Ha!
